Event description

Description

Written by: Caryl Churchill

Directed by: Sean Mee

Presented by: Acting Company 2019 and Production


‘There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what
is true.’ – Soren Kierkegaard

After a sharp and bloody conflict and the summary execution of a dictator, the people of Romania suddenly found themselves ‘free’. Caryl Churchill’s scorching examination of the events leading up to the populist uprising in 1989, and the devastating consequences in the aftermath, speaks urgently to us now. With ironic wit and her trademark theatrical flair, Churchill unpacks the helplessness of the truth when a great lie is told. Mad Forest tells an epic story about oppression; of very ordinary people who become unwittingly complicit in a grand deception.
